Total revenue in the second quarter was a record high $273.7 million, up 59% compared to $172.0 million in the year-ago period. Net income in the second quarter totaled $23.6 million, or $0.67 per diluted share. By comparison, net income totaled $4.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the year-ago period.

“All areas of our core business improved on a year-over-year basis, contributing to this quarter’s record revenue. Our fiscal second quarter financial performance also reflects a significant increase in the level of storm restoration activity,” said J. Eric Pike, Chairman and CEO of Pike. “Our year-to-date revenue of $518.3 million suggests fiscal 2013 will be a record year for Pike. In addition, earnings for the six months ended December 31, 2012 are already three times higher than the $0.31 per diluted share we reported for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.”
